Why is the 'universe' repository for Ubuntu not available in OBS?

bascially for time and legal reasons. It contains packages which
are considered to be at least problematic by Novell legal and I
don't have time to review them.

No, you are wrong.

Packages with may pose legal trouble are in *multiverse* not in

no, I found enough illegal packages in universe. Stuff which contains

for example all the ffmpeg packages, but one need to look in each source
